DIY Mini Fresh Flower Bouquet Favors With Help From Michaels®!

I’ll be honest – I’m not especially handy with a glue gun. Like most of you, I love all things handmade, and I love shopping at Michaels, but I’m not super confident in my ability to undertake complicated craft projects. These little bad boys, however, were shamefully simple. I grabbed a few favors and

embellishments from Michaels Wedding Department, and whipped it all together in minutes – no glue gun, no mess. My inspiration was this succulent wedding favor project – I made my own interpretation using fresh flowers. Here are the other things you’ll need:

BRIDES® Baker’s Twine (Black)

Celebrate It® Galvanized Pail Set


Fresh Flowers

If you know how to tie your shoes, you can complete this easy peasy DIY project. It’s fairly straightforward, but here’s the play by play…


1. First, wind several feet of the baker’s twine tightly around the silver pails, and tie it off in the front. If you want the twine to be extra secure, begin by placing an adhesive dot or a very light dab of hot glue on one side of the pails.

2. Trim flowers down so that the stems are only a couple of inches long. Fill the pails with a little water – just up to the mid-mark, as you don’t want these to splash on your guests.

3. Arrange the blooms in the pail favors. With larger blooms like peonies or ranunculus, you’d only need one or two. I broke down a Mother’s Day bouquet and filled my pails with different flowers.

I used these little bouquet favors to create my own miniature wedding centerpiece, adding a few of my favorite vintage tchotchkes. You could use these to supplement your own wedding centerpieces, or arrange them all on a special favor table!
